Robert Boyle

A Table of the Rarefication of the Air: Using a glass U - tube and a column of mercury, the volume of air contained in one arm of the tube increased as the length, and so the pressure, of the column of mercury in the other arm was reduced. The change in volume was in accord with the theoretical law, Boyle's Law, that volume is inversely proportional to the pressure.

Archimedean screw by Gaspard G. de Serviere, 1719 Featured 1 Jan 1754 Print

Archimedean screw by Gaspard G. de Serviere, 1719

Archimedean screw operated by reciprocating rope to give continuous circular motion. The screw is being used to raise water from A to B. The invention of this device for raising water by either a spiral tube wound round an axis, or by a broad screw fitted in a tube, is attributed to Archimedes (c187 - 212BC) but there is evidence that it was known and used for irrigation as early as 600 BC. Engraving from "Receuil d'ouvrages Curieux de Mathematique et de Mecanique,..." by Gaspard Grollier de Serviere (Lyons, 1719)
